Al Rayyan Venue set to reach 50% capacity for Amir Cup final

By QLNews

The Supreme Committee for Delivery & Legacy (SC) has announced its latest milestone achievement on the road to the FIFA World Cup Qatar 2022.

The inauguration of the stadium located in Al Rayyan will take place on December 18 on Qatar National Day and it will host this year’s Amir Cup final.

Al Rayyan Venue will reach approximately 50% capacity on December 18. The match will kick off at 7:00 pm.

Tickets for the final are being limited to one per person due to COVID-19 restrictions and will be linked to the holder’s Qatar ID.

Tickets are non-transferable and fans will be required to adhere to strict social distancing rules, including wearing a face mask, showing their ‘Green code’ health status on Ehteraz app upon arrival. Sitting will only be permitted at the designated seats.

Following discussions between the Qatar Football Association (QFA) and the Ministry of Public Health (MoPH), any fan who attends the match must return either a positive COVID-19 antibodies test or a negative COVID-19 test prior to being allowed access to the stadium.

Social distancing measures will be implemented within the vicinity of the stadium, including the fan zone and on public transport.

The fan zone will open from 4:00 pm to 6:00 pm and again at 9:00 pm. Fans will be encouraged to remain at the fan zone or spend time in the Mall of Qatar to ensure social distancing requirements are adhered to on Doha Metro.

Priority access to tickets was granted to fans of both Al Sadd and Al Arabi, the two clubs who will contest the final.

Khalid Al Kuwari, Director of Marketing & Communications, QFA, congratulated Al Sadd and Al Arabi on reaching the final before adding, “We are looking forward to a great atmosphere at Al Rayyan Venue on 18 December. Our priority is to ensure everyone’s safety, in line with the measures implemented by the Supreme Committee for Crisis Management. We have adopted a new ticketing process, which includes testing everyone for COVID-19 before they are allowed to enter the stadium. A good number of people have already claimed their tickets and we are looking forward to a great occasion on Qatar National Day.”

The 40,000-capacity stadium, which was built on the site of Ahmed Bin Ali Stadium, is adjacent to the Mall of Qatar and within walking distance of Doha Metro’s Al Riffa Station.

The stadium’s most striking feature is a glowing façade, comprised of patterns that characterize different aspects of Qatar: the importance of family, the beauty of the desert, native flora and fauna, and local and international trade.
